While they were on the platform, one of the males reportedly dropped their keys over the fence and climbed over a barrier in an attempt to retrieve them. While trying to get the keys, the man fell approximately 40-feet into the gorge below.
He was since rescued and transported by an air ambulance to Hamilton’s critical care unit where he currently remains in stable condition. The male was issued a provincial offence notice for the offence of “Climb Wall” contrary to the Niagara Parks Act.
